Darker Nights and Inner Calm


Winter approaching can mean more time at home to relax and take care of yourself. Relaxation, pampering, self indulgence, entertaining and socialising all feature and replace some of the more frantic, busy activity of the summer.

In contrast some people can feel depressed and lonely as the seasons change . Dark nights and the tendency for people to stay indoors can cause more social isolation. The lack of sunshine and warmth can result in Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Looking for development opportunities and remembering to plan some fun times and social events, can really help maintain health and wellbeing over the coming months.

Avoid just becoming planted in front of the television, or transfixed playing computer games. Residing inside your head can limit your experiences, try to externalise more and enjoy what is around you living life through the senses for a better day to day experience.
